It's just ignorant to state that "the experts" don't have a theory on what happened to the mummies, given the written testimony from Ancient Egyptian sources that clearly show there was tomb robbing occurring, albeit from a later era.

It's like my graveyard pic. Here's a grave. There's another grave. These are all obviously graves.

But the hole? Why, that's altogether different!

The experts have no idea what that hole is for.

I'll take that is a logical argument when you really have no evidence that a body exist, just speculation. cool

A grave is not a body.

For once it wasn’t (unless I missed it) the usual shower of Ruperts and Basset Hounds (at least not at first), but rather an application of intellectual rigour (and the summonation of CK) that did for this thread.

Neither is an empty coffer. Jeeez, Harte, don't tell me we are being congruent and all ;)

"Coffer," eh? LOL

You mean sarcophagus, which IS a grave. Or a cenotaph.

If it was a cenotaph, the accoutrements with it don't make much sense. The funerary temple, the so-called "air shafts," the plugs that sealed it, the Grand Gallery, etc.

Sorry, it's called inductive reasoning. Look it up. It's not exactly "speculation."

If you don't believe in it, then tell us this - what do you do every day to ensure that the Sun rises tomorrow?

Well I sacrifice two chickens, a dented can of cream corn and any left over neighborhood children to the sun god - works every time.

/I/, in the manner of all good, right-thinking people, trust Them to trigger whatever metaphysical mechanics work the sun. 

Although after Sir W’s crypto-heretical remark above, we all best offer up penitential ham sacrifices lest we be left in perpetual darkness…

At times…. But the I take the  consolation prize in judging all of you.

and seriously…. Congrats on running off another one.

 

I mean this person wasn’t even an Atlantis person and got racked. He just had an idea that the pyramids were planned out. You guys did good. Don’t want those sort of people around here. Thumbs up.

I understand the highest accolade an early Egyptian could earn was the title of a “a /very/ good boy.”

At the ceremony where the award was bestowed, the priests would cry out to the audience in ritual supplication, “Who is a good boy?” The recipient would then ask, “Is it I? Am I a good boy?” And the priest would answer, “Thou art, o man, a good boy. A /very/ good boy.” And the people would rejoice and share a communal meal of ham.

That said, the ritual of the very good boi was markedly different.

I mean was this post necessary? Good for chuckles with your brethren I guess. I’d rather keep new members. Regardless of their “heretical pyramid” ideas.

 

yes it’s tough

Heaven forfend someone share a joke that everyone can laugh at. And it is clearly a joke.

Bah. You guys are upset because someone calls you out. I’ve lurked here for years. There is a systematic scrubbing of users you don’t like or agree with. It is what it is.:.. just pointing it out. 
 

I mean if you really want an embarrassing example I’ll post and necro on threads with replies the 1000 times you have done it in a year. 
 


my great grandfather once told me… being kind is ok and right.

Dude, that post was a masterpiece.

And there isn't anything in this section BUT good chuckles with our brethren.

Your looking at two decades of showing claims false when you look at just me. I even started doing it in limericks - just so it wouldn't be so easy.

There's nothing here we haven't been through down to the finest detail scores of times over the years. Reminds me of a joke.

A new convict came into the prison. In the cafeteria, he heard a man yell out "23." Everyone rolled laughing. Another guy stood up and with a knowing look yelled "57," then winked and nodded. The convicts screamed laughter.

The new guy asked the con next to him what gives with these numbers. His neighbor said everyone knows all the jokes by heart, so we just indexed them and now we just call their numbers.

New guy thinks he'll try it so he stands up and yells "42!"

Not a peep. Could've heard a pin drop.

New guy sits back down embarrassed and asked his neighbor why no laughter.

He said "Well, son, I guess some folks can tell 'em and some folks caint."

Ohh jog on. 
Someone makes a stupid “ongoing gag” and suddenly we’re a clique that excludes new voices.

I only read every second word in Harte's postings and Sir wearers  I read yours backwards. Cormac is special I have my computer read them in a high squeaky voice and I always put Kenemet's posts to music, usually Tijuana Brass.

Windowpane I usually read while listening to somber Psalms in Latin.

I agree with Nobu that there is a lot of crap posted here. Some people come here and are interested in sharing and learning new things, but there are also some frequent posters who seem to have nothing better to do than make silly comments and poke fun at others. Reminds me of clique's in high school where the "cool" kids make fun of the geeks.

I find that most folks here have, for good or ill, a very quickly applied rubric about posts made by others. If it has an air of “ancient aliens” or “all historians are liars” about it, then Rupert and the Basset Hounds turn up. If not, it’s serious faces and genuine questions. 
Look at the Younger Dryas thread, or the Sumerian thread. But if someone decides to bring Plato’s invention into a discussion as anything other than an analogy? Respect exunt stage left.

Yeah I've been doing online archaeology/mysteries stuff since the late 80's on USENET. I have a fair appreciation of whether a thread will be 'useful', educational, an ego fest, woo parade,  tête dans le cul! or  Et mon cul, c’est du poulet?  whatever, sometimes I'm surprised but most often I am not. Since we aren't paid to post here, and haven't given an oath or agreed to anything with our sponsor Saru or the demi-god of forums a Hindu fellow called Sintor the twice severed. Then αυτή είναι η επιλογή μου.

I use inductive reasoning myself.

Since many constructions in - say, the Khufu P, are merely symbolic, never meant for human use, and...
since three coffers that were sealed in antiquity were empty, implying a form of symbolism, and...
since the coffers of the most famous Pharos were also found to be empty, 

I have educed that the coffers in the great pyramids were symbolic, not meant for human use. There.

We have our differences of opinion, but I admit my point of view is not proven.

Then it would be on you to show why you came to that concussion.
